Can anyone tell me, how should light switches be grounded in plastic boxes, what I mean is, does the plastic box have to be grounded? or can the switch be grounded alone? As it applies to cec.

All the ground wires should be tied together and a ground wire going to each ground screw on the switches. Unless it's a metal box it does not have to be grounded.....plastic is not conductive....
